It is a shame to eliminate such a useful attribute. Diane, You have to remember that you have web experience, and you know what you're doing. Someone less clueful might fit the "panicked user" profile much better. Just because you find opening PDF documents in new windows useful, doesn't mean that someone else might find it annoying. At the end of the day, if target is *not* set, you have the choice to right-click->open in new window. If target *is* set, then you don't have the option to open in the same window.
